Abstract

Earthquakes in high mountain regions like the one that struck Nepal in 2015 can trigger large landslides that bury villages, flood rivers and block important international roads, resulting in catastrophic human and economic losses.

University of Dayton associate professor of geology Umesh Haritashya will study the conditions and triggers of landslides in the Himalaya and Karakorum mountains of southeast Asia under a new $1.17 million grant from NASA.
